It has been two years since I visited Trinity at Copley Square in Boston.  Voted in the top 10 of America’s significant buildings, the church has recently completed an extensive renovation.  I had hoped to encounter the altar guild early Saturday morning but I arrived at 8 a.m. and was too early. There was to be a wedding later in the afternoon and the flowers, beautifully arranged along the choir stalls and high altar, were already in place.  The undercroft gift shop provided a happy half hour of shopping and is a focal point of the magnificent undercroft renovation. The sun was streaming in the east windows so photography was difficult but the golden glow of the rich woods, bright polychrome and jewel-like stained glass came through in most of the photographs in the slide presentation below.  The church is open every day for visitors and must be seen in person to fully appreciate the majesty of its interiors and exteriors, and genius of its architect H.H. Richardson.  Trinity was dedicated in 1877.  For more on the church, events, history and times of services, please visit the website at
